'Failed to load Main-Class manifest' while installing JMF on Fedora5


I tried to install the Java Media Framework on my x86_64 Fedora5.

I did it using the zip-archive, so I downloaded it, unzipped it, added the path to jmf.jar to my $CLASSPATH variable and added the paths to all of my JMF- directories to my $PATH variable.

To install the JMF, I need to run the jmf.jar, so I entered:

$ java -jar jmf.jar

and this is what I got:

$ java -jar jmf.jar
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from jmf.jar
I located the jmf.jar with

$ locate jmf.jar

and the directory seems to be correct.

what should i do now?

please help,
